HUD Official: Baltimore Got $16 Billion From Admin Last Year, Where Did The Money Go?


Lynne Patton, the regional administrator for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, said that $16 billion in grants was given to Cummings’s district alone in 2018.

PATTON: “This administration — and I want to say this expressly to Mayor Young and Michael Steele and Al Sharpton, who today called out the President and said let President Trump put his money where his mouth is. Well, boys and girls, I have a message for you, President Trump has given $16 billion in 2018 alone to Elijah Cummings’ district in federal grants. We have given more money in homeless funds to Baltimore than the last administration. We have given more money in community development grants than the last administration to Baltimore. My question to you guys is this, what are you actually doing with the money so that it benefits residents in the community for once instead of deep pocket crooked politicians?”

President Trump says $16 Billion to Baltimore was ‘stolen or wasted, ask Elijah Cummings where it went. He should investigate himself with his Oversight Committee!’

The Baltimore Sun confirms that they received just under $15.7 billion in grants, benefits, and assistance in the fiscal year 2018.

Liberals will never admit that President Trump is really helping minorities… because if they did, they would lose their control over them and more importantly lose their votes
